http://www.africahome.com/annews/categories/economy/EpkAypylpZqrIWwfxC.shtml

Women protesters in Nigeria have again occupied an oil facility belonging t=
o ChevronTexaco to back demands for amenities and jobs, company officials s=
aid on Friday. A similar round of protests had affected several facilities =
of the company in July.

Scores of half-naked, middle-aged women in about 15 boats arrived on Wednes=
day at ChevronTexaco's Ewan oilfield, in the western reaches of the Niger=
Delta, the officials said. Their presence has disrupted oil operations, fo=
rcing the company to evacuate its employees from the facility. "The women a=
re not violent but we have taken the precautionary measure of evacuating ou=
r staff," a ChevronTexaco official told IRIN in Lagos.

Anihilist Schlock


BlankAnihilist Schlock by Ouch Those Monkeys

http://artists.mp3s.com/artist_song/2674/2674452.html
Anihlist Schlock - a playful anti Bush song. With cut up rhythms, with
screaming vocals.

CD - Enron vs The World
Label - furtherfield.org

Story Behind the Song
Anihilst Schlock is about Bush's obsession with killing off People who do
not think the same way as him; limited, dead in the mind but still living
like a rabid feral midget but also a frankenstein.
